User(s) can reproduce this bug
CommandBarButtons created by add-ins in context menus don't appear, only appear those on toolbars or menus.
Visual Studio 2010 Beta 1
Windows XP Professional
Operating System Language
Steps to Reproduce
Create a VS 2010 add-in in VB.NET with the code of the attached file.
The add-in uses a temporary user interface (not a permanent one) and creates a command and a couple of CommandbarButtons, one on the "Standard" toolbar and other in the context menu of a code window ("Code Window" commandbar)
The button on the toolbar appears, the one on the code window context menu doesn't. The same happens if you use other context menus such as Solution context menu, etc.
This worked in previous versions of Visual Studio
TAP Code (if applicable)

Thank you for taking the time to send us feedback on Visual Studio 2010 Beta 1.
The clear repro steps you provided were helpful for us to correctly identify the problem you are encountering with CommandBarButtons not appearing on context menus. As you have noted, these buttons will appear correctly on toolbars. (This is our suggested work around for the Beta 1 release.) This issue has been fixed, and you will see the results in future releases.
I will send along the code you attached to our QA team for further verification of the fix that was made. Thanks again for taking the time to report the issue.
